Graphite sketches are valuable as studies for oil paintings and also as stand alone artwork. Abraxas enjoys the simplicity of graphite - the subtle tonal variations and dramatic contrast that is possible can be combined to create complex pieces of art. These sketches are primarily rendered on bristol which is a heavy duty, acid free paper that tolerates extensive blending. Most of the sketches below are sold, so inquire here for a list of available original works of art.
